  • Groenewald, Christoffel Johannes (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: An Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) demonstrator and testing platform was required for satellite engineering students. The ADCS demonstrator and testing platform will allow students to ...
  • Alzogaiby, Adel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work entails the development and performance analysis of a human gait detection system based on radar micro-Doppler signals. The system consists of a tracking functionality and a target classifier. ...
  • Stofberg, Anneke (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Large close range environmental reflections or poor isolation between the transmit and receive paths of an FMCW radar can overload the receiver. The In phase and Quadrature phase (IQ) Reflected Power ...
  • Thompson, Nicholas Christopher (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Technical advances in electromagnetics, signal processing and processing power have led to a significant increase in sensitivity and accuracy in radio telescopes. With this increase in sensitivity, radio ...
  • Matladi, Thabang-Kingsley (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Superconducting QUantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) are fairly recent types of magnetometers that use flux quantization combined with Josephson tunnelling to detect very faint (< 10¯15 T) magnetic ...
  • Nye, Jonathan Mark (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work investigated the influence of photo-voltaic generators on the voltage control of distribution feeders and the methods that can be used to increase the maximum penetration levels of these feeders. ...
  • Van Wyk, Hendrik Petrus Daniel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis the design and testing of the baseband components of a modem intended for use as a telemetry and control link for a low earth orbit satellite is presented. This includes parts of the ...
  • Thesnaar, Emile Jacobus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Within a complex electronic system, sub-system communication forms the backbone of the functionality of any satellite. It allows multiple processors to run simultaneously and data to be shared amongst ...
  • Botha, Antheun (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The extension of the Karoo Array Telescope (KAT), MeerKAT, will be the most sensitive radio telescope in the southern hemisphere until it is superseded by the completion of the Square Kilometre Array ...
  • Kilian, Anton Theo (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work discusses the design of a 3-axis Geomagnetometer SQUID System (GSS), in which HTS SQUIDs are used unshielded. The initial GSS installed at SANSA was fully operable, however the LN2 evaporation ...
  • Alberts, Stefan Francois (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The fairly recent introduction of low-cost depth sensors such as Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect has encouraged a large amount of research on the use of depth sensors for many common Computer Vision problems. ...
  • Du Toit, F. J. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The discovery of sparse graph codes, used in forward error correction strate- gies, has had an unrivaled impact on Information theory over the past decade. A recent advancement in this field, called ...
  • Chewele, Youngie Klyv (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The development of fast and efficient processors, programmable devices and high power semiconductors has led to the increased use of semiconductors directly in the power supply path in order to achieve ...
  • Botha, Johannes Rudolf (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Recent years have seen a decline in the rate of space exploration due to the inefficiency of chemical rockets. Therefore alternative fuel efficient propulsion methods are being sought to enable cost ...
